the tea party, which by the way grew out of the t.a.r.p. situationn it goes beyond someone being to anti-obama. just this week, tim burton said that he has been to tea party rallies and he has heard the n-word spread around. this is a relentless campaign to put people in their place. it seems to me to be totally unfounded and totally unfair. >> i agree with that. i think people go looking to find something to discredit them. and author of "the new york times" wrote a book about the tea party. "the new york times" is not super conservative, and she found what you said. these are not people who are racist. they are not uneducated people that the media likes of retirement. i think most of them have good intentions. the issue is if you're going to tell your party it is my way or the highway, and if you deviate from this at all, we will come after you. that is not constructive. it just isn't going to work. what you have to do is try to move them and get them to the right place. charles: i guess only the president can say it is my way or the highway. kiersten, thank you so much. the former dec commi
after the election, now they're throwing out their plans. you had obama last week, you had the republicans counter that today. they're a mile apart -- david: michael, hold on a second. let me make sure that we get you straight here, because i think i might have misread your notes. you're not saying we're going to have a 4% contraction in the economy, you think a 4% pullout in the market? >> oh, absolutely not. no, i'm not making a call like that on the economy. i'm saying the market could back up that amount in a worst case scenario if it gets contentious in the next few weeks. but unlike the others, i do think they will come to an agreement. i do think right now you're seeing the negotiating process play out, and when you have this play out, the market that's already run up, i think we could go sideways and trade like we did today. today wasn't disastrous. volume was very light. yeah, we went out on the lows, we had some negative economic data points, and i think that's what we're in for until we get some clarity on what happens with the cliff. >> all right, charlie, folks
